    Actually, no. He's insinuating that Trump "find[s] it necessary to support [his] position by fabricating and spreading falsehoods." :shrug: Just more of his usual schtick.

    Poking around a bit, I found this:

    In the Bible, unleavened bread is called “unleavened bread,” whereas leavened bread is simply called “bread.” The Jews at that time would have understood this as...

    Well, the East has used leavened bread since nearly the beginning, and that's what was normally used in most Protestant churches I attended. I would go with that over tortillas.

    He thinks he IS being honest about his own conduct. John 9:41 is not inapt, I think.

    It is not the entire service; it is the centerpiece of the service.

    As far as I can tell, you have a low view of communion; low church Protestants (of which you are one) tend to view it as either a symbol or an ordinance. You tack it on to your regular worship...
